i think if we’re going to have on on-line forum, which i personally think is a good idea, we should use FaceBook because it’s something that most people are already using.

Maybe this is something SNA wants to set up. I’m happy to do that.

The are concerns about bullying, dictatorial group moderators, spam, and privacy. There’s an app on the app store.  Of around 8,000 reviews, only about 400 are the lowest possible.

Nextdoor.com <http://nextdoor.com/> is much newer than the SNA list, so it has fewer archived conversations; which in turn means you may not find what you're looking for.
